What is the difference between a Canopy Tent and a High Peak Marquee Tent?
As you embark on planning your next outdoor event, our goal is to assist you with choosing the right party rental items that will help contribute to the success of your event. Employing the use of tent and event rental items is a sure way to enhance the positive experience and convenience level for you and your guests throughout the duration of your event. Renting a tent(s) for your outdoor event is a great way to provide a high level of comfort for all your guests largely because of the protection from natural elements such as rain, Sun’s harmful UV radiation, and wind that a tent provides.
When determining the right type of tent for your event, it is important that you understand the advantages and disadvantages between the tent styles available to you from a tent rental company. The common tent styles available in the Toronto and Greater Toronto areas are: Canopy Tents (Popup Canopy), Frame Tents, Pole Tents, High Peak Marquee Tents, and Clear Span Tents. A few other tent styles might exist out there, however the above six styles are the most common.
In the last blog post, we took a detailed look at the main difference between a Frame Tent and a Pole Tent Rental. We also briefly mentioned two other tent styles; a Canopy Tent and a High Peak Marquee Tent Rental. In this post, we will explain the main difference between these two tent structures and the benefits they can each provide to your next party tent rental experience.
A canopy tent is a light duty structure ideal for short-term tent rental durations. The steel or aluminum material used in constructing the structure is lighter and less durable than the steel or aluminum material used to construct a high peak marquee tent or other tent structures.
As a tent rental company in Toronto, we have found that canopies are ideal for short-term events such as backyard garden parties in your home, vendor booths during outdoor festivals, company BBQ or picnics in public parks, and any other event where the structure is not erected for more than 72 hours. For events that are longer in duration, we would recommend a sturdier tent such as the high peak marquee tent, frame tent, or pole tent.
Another type of canopy tent available for rent is the Popup Canopy Tent. You are probably most familiar with this type of canopy tent, also known as the Caravan Tent, or Ez-up Canopy. This is a single frame, collapsible structure designed to provide instant shade and protection from light rain. They are easy to setup and takedown and a single person with experience can erect one in less than ten minutes. It is important to note that not all Popup Canopy Tents are built the same. You can find them extremely cheap in your local superstore, however due to the ultra light material used to construct them, they unfortunately do not last more than a couple uses. They also become a hazard when used in windy settings, as they can take off and cause injury to you and bystanders.
Customers renting popup canopy tents from us here at AllCargos Tent & Event Rentals enjoy a peace of mind because all our canopies are custom built to last and withstand beyond moderate wind speeds and offer greater protection from the natural elements. Since our inception our canopies have provided shade and protection to families, soccer moms, charity organizations, vendors and their merchandise all across Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.

The high peak marquee tent is a unique structure that gives your event a high peak look. Similar to the frame tent this tent is a combination of poles joint together with corner joints. However the high peak marquee tent incorporates two stainless steel cross cable that support the centre pole that creates the high peak effect. Unlike the pole tent, this centre pole does not extend all the way to the ground, reducing the overall space within the tent. The high peak marquee tent is a sure eye catcher for any event. Its high peak can be seen from a distance attracting more people to the festivities, if that’s your goal of course.
Every tent rental is unique therefore this versatile tent is our go to option because it can be installed on multiple surfaces including grass, asphalt, patio deck, concrete, and more. Depending on the installation surface we employ various methods to secure the tent to the ground, on grass surfaces where staking is permitted we secure the tent to 4ft stakes hammered into the ground and when staking is not an option we employ the use of water barrels or concrete weights.
We are also proud to be among one of the few party and tent rental companies in Toronto that offer the clear transparent tent top covers as part of our party tent rental inventory.
